CONTRIBUTIONS TO IRISH LEXICOaRAPHY. 



The following collection of words is the outcome of about 
twelve years desultory reading of Middle- and early Modern- 
Irish books and manuscripts. It would be much fuller, if from 
the outset I had made my excerpts in a systematic and metho- 
dical manner. As it is, the vocabulary of no single book or 
manuscript is fully represented. 

As a general rule, words the form and meaning of which 
have been established by Windisch in his Worterbuch, or by 
Atkinson in the Glossary to his Passions and Homilies have 
been omitted. On the other hand, I have included words from 
the smaller Grlossaries with which Stokes, Atkinson, Hogan, and 
myself have been in the habit of accompanying the editions of 
separate texts. In such cases, however, a simple reference to 
these glossaries has generally been deemed sufficient. 

I have to thank Mr. Whitley Stokes for kindly allowing 
me to incorporate his collections of words from the Annals, and 
Prof. John Strachan for letting me compare my excerpts from
